I’ll have so much things to blog about and so little time to do it. But my sticky note with all the things I’d like to blog is now full and I have absolutely to start again doing it.
So, here I am. First argument I decided to blog about is quite easy: the error page.
Ehi, what is the error page?
I call an error page the one browsers usually show you when they cannot find and/or load the page related to the URL you requested/digited. According to a feature request done by a certain “Filippo” in bugzilla, improving our error page has been one of the target for next rekonq stable release.
Well… why should I list the features when I can just list some screenshot?
These are the pages shown in the most common browsers when loading the unextant URL “cinfullac.com” (sparse typing on my keyboard). Here you are:
In case you missed it just seeing the page, the features are:
- Suggestions on possibly error causes (similar to konq)
- Ability to reload the page (quite everyone has it)
- link shortcuts for the usual network/proxy/firewall KDE kcm settings
- Search about the page with the default search engine
- Load an old snapshot of the page via “Google” or “Wayback Machine” caches
So, given I’m not that web designer, I think we have a very nice and truly functional error page. Probably better than some other seen on the “big brothers”. What do you think?
